Prince William Democratic Committee
POB 1523 Woodbridge, VA 22195
My name is Harry W. Wiggins and it is an honor and privilege to serve as your Chair of the Prince William County Democratic Committee. I want to share with you some plans for 2012 and 2013.
This year and next are critical junctures in our democracy. This year we have several critical elections, the re-election of President Obama and Congressman Gerry Connolly and the election of Tim Kaine to the US Senate, as well as the election of strong Congressional candidates in the 1st and 10th CDs. A Republican takeover of the White House would be devastating to our country with the Republicans selling our democracy to the highest Wall Street bidder.
Feet on the street and strong candidates are our most valuable resources, we have a strong cadre of volunteers but must redouble our efforts in recruiting additional volunteers to support the President, our Congressman and Tim Kaine. Losing any of those races would be catastrophic for our Party as well as our country.
We need to start organizing right now for November’s election. Several of our members have stepped up to lead our standing and special committees, but we need strong, willing committee members to elect our candidates:
Finance Committee: Co-Chaired by Elizabeth Nathanson and Paul Nichols
Political (Candidate Recruitment): Co-Chaired by Earnie Porta and Carl Genthner
Outreach: Co-Chaired by Jane Touchet, we need a Co-chair from the west or mid county; Young Democrats, Co-Chaired by Michael Futrell and Justin Wilk
Communications: Co-Chaired by Debbie Gaiser and Bill Stackhouse
Operations: Co-Chaired by Zoe Vitter, we need a co-chair from the west or mid county
The operating/standing committees need to be filled out by volunteers from the Magisterial Committees.
Over the next several months we will be holding train the trainers sessions that will develop our skills in voter contact, new member development, GOTV, use of VAN, and canvassing.
We will also be developing a minority caucus to support minority candidates and voters.
I hope you will join us in this effort to elect Democrats in PWC. We can lead the way!
